Not a single song on A Grave With No Name‘s debut record runs over three minutes, and “Fire Island” begins with the type of pounding bassline you expect to launch into a snotty lo-fi freakout for people into skateboarding/not giving a shit. But instead, the almost New Age song wisps away into the distance. It’s the kind of music that comes from creating an entire album of transitions and song sketches and somehow ending up with a satisfying whole. Mountain Debris comes out on Lefse Records in November, which should give everyone plenty of time to practice their lotus positions and arrange their crystals in a satisfying manner.
